For my family, Memorial Day has special meaning. The meaning has to do with generations of our men joining the service, and some of them going away to war. If your family was never involved or related to anyone who served this way, I can understand your confusion. My father, James Ajamie, and my uncles,… Continue reading Memorial Day and Why We Care

Interspersed with that are dragons, elves, dwarfs, and even aliens. Our new book, Atrell, is no different. We are happy to tell you, we are releasing Atrell May 1, on Amazon… Continue reading It’s Just A Matter of Time

It reached 98 degrees in Phoenix, yesterday. Typical for Spring in Arizona. The temps will rollercoaster up and down until the middle of June, and then it will be like Death Valley until the end of September. The weather here makes me think of what Moses felt when he stared into the burning bush. Of… Continue reading Spring is here, Spring is here!

Elizabeth has published the third installment of the Memories of War - A Journey of Faith series. We… Continue reading The Mirror Gate Team: So Much Going On
This is a repost of God Defines Me: God Defines Me #1 Posted on November 19, 2017 by rdeemd1 I read an awesome article by Peter Chin from Christianity Today called Why me, God, But in a Different Way, which inspired the heck out of me. The basic premise of the article was as Christians, we shouldn’t be… Continue reading Repost: Why Not Me?
Howdy, folks, family, & friends. I have to say, writing is dirty work. I've probably told you this before, but it never hurts to say it again. Each segment of a story has to be thoroughly thought through. (see all those th's?) First your idea, or in TJ's case, his dream, then a pseudo outline,… Continue reading When Will I See You Again?
When you turn 65, you have to get new ID cards. Just saying. You get a new driver's license, new military ID (if you are/were in the military), a new Medicare Card... Every insurance company in the US of A is annoying you to buy their part B. Fortunately for us, our military ID comes… Continue reading 60 Something
Well, let’s just say 2020 was an interesting year. With the government telling everyone to stay inside, and because we could not travel, it meant we could not attend any of the conventions (we prepaid for). We, like many others, stayed inside and did these things: Gained weight, lost weight, went crazy, divorced (we didn't),… Continue reading What TJ Boyer did in the Year 2020
We all want miracles. Don't pretend you don't know what I am talking about. Everyone wants something fabulous to happen to them. Some want to win the lottery. Some want to find everlasting love. Some only want to feel safe and secure. You know it's true. Laughingly, TJ and I talk about what we would… Continue reading A Miracle, or Two
It is interesting how hindsight is 20/20. Too bad we don't all "see" what life is going to be, or what it could be in 40+ years. The reason I mention this is because of events in the last 6 or so years. When TJ and I were teenagers, 17 and 16 years old, we… Continue reading A Short Review of Life (I Hope)
I am excited to announce My Soul Awaits - Connie's Story has gone to the BETA readers. This is the second step in the editing process, and hopefully, the third book in my series will be ready by Christmas! If you've read my books, Memories of War begins with Markus and Meggie Petersen beginning a… Continue reading Coming Soon: My Soul Awaits
Writing isn't easy. You know how I know this? Two ways: 1) I write, and coming up with story line or poetry stresses you out. Even if you love it. And 2) So many people tell me they'd love to write a story, but just don't think they could. I think everyone has a story… Continue reading It Isn’t Easy, You Know It Isn’t Easy
The world is in turmoil from the recent events of COVID-19. We really don't want to fall into that maelstrom of doom, so we are hoping to keep this blog light. We also do not want to politicize our blog. Just leave it to say we are doing what is expedient at this time. Our… Continue reading In Light of the Plague
Did you know the Ten Commandments were written in stone, by the finger of God? I am reading through a chronological Bible right now, and I read this. Every now and then I find something that stands out to me and it is so interesting. God actually talked to people and interacted physically with people… Continue reading Written by the Finger of God
I was looking up gossip to make sure what I thought about it is true. And it is. Here’s the definition of gossiping. gos·sip noun casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details that are not confirmed as being true. "he became the subject of much local gossip" verb engage in… Continue reading Gossip – What Does the Bible Say?
I try. I really, really try to keep positive about all the junk going on right now. I am torn between belief that we should be hunkering down to protect our family and friends, and thinking this is all a whole pile of poo. I feel as if this COVID-19 fiasco is just a trick… Continue reading A Brief (and hideous) Moment in Time
The media (all the media) insists on making it worse than it is, and it is bad enough without their help.
The remodel of the kitchen is finished. We are exhausted and TJ has a cold, however, beginning tomorrow we will be back at writing and editing. We are in the middle of the story of Atrell. Atrell was brought to Rednog when he was found alone and abandoned on the desolate planet he called home.… Continue reading Writing and Remodeling Don’t Mix
I am going to tell you all a short story. TJ Boyer and Elizabeth Ajamie-Boyer have been married for 46 years. They have stuck it out through thick and thin and this month they've been remodeling their kitchen with the help of their son, Thomas and son-in-law, Travis. But today, they've been on their own… Continue reading A Short Vignette
